and it launched full hazardous materials abatement work methods and adding it's tracking air quality levels. what is set to come here in place? we're talking a mixture of shopping, housing, millions of square feet of office space, and we'll have more on permanent jobs, those details coming up in our last report in about 45 minutes. live outside the stick, stephanie chuang, "today in the bay." >> it will look completely different when they're done. >> a lot of facets to the story, the jobs impact you mentioned, steph neat, thank you very much. 6:06. time to check the microclimate forecast and take a peek at the beautiful bay bridge. i love the light imlum nating the water. >> so serene and calm. the opposite of that, candlestick park known for its hair-whipping wind but that should not be the case throughout the bay area today. >> good morning to you. actually the ingredients for fog development, clear skies and calm winds. we have both in place and seeing that fog this morning. i want to start with water conservation tips, obviously the drought still in the forefront
of a lot of people's mind and this we can't urge you to do enough. even though we are at about 110% of our average rainfall, there's a couple things that you can continue to do because we're trying to dig out of three plus years of drought at this point. dishwashers actually use less water than washing a load by hand. you can defrost food in the refrigerator instead of using water to thaw it out and we were talking about this yesterday, if it you plug the sink when you're using a razor is satisfies 300 gallons of water per month. so very significant ways that you can help just by changing things minor. 53 degrees in the south bay. peninsula right now at 55 degrees, and we've got a beautiful, beautiful day, just a minor change from where we ended up yesterday, that is the sun come out a little bit earlier. as a result, temperatures will end up warmer into the mid-70s for some spots, and we're actually expecting to break some records up in the north bay, where the warm e reading will
come in, 70 degrees for today in the north bay. 64 degrees in san francisco. we'll hit 71 in the tri valley and 70 degrees for us here in the south bay. want to fly you to your local beaches and talk about that beach weather that's really going to start to be really nice as we head throughout tomorrow, more sunshine on the way as offshore gloeof offshore flow gets going. 69 degrees at half moon bay almost unheard of to be this warm this time of year. you might want to take advantage of it. like i said before we have a chance for rain as of next weekend. santa cruz is at 71 degrees. so count on a lot of extra traffic over 17. let's find out how that traffic looks right now, here's mike inouye. >> good morning, christina. we'll talk about over around the bay, first of all get you out there and show you how things are for the san mateo bridge. the low clouds and flog drift around like they did yesterday. we'll look over, problems on both sides of the san mateo bridge, on the peninsula side
crash eastbound 92, connector to southbound 101. sounds like it's hampered by a crash on that connector in lanes, traffic looks like it's getting by but slowing on the scene and chp has yet to give us more detail as they arrive. tracking on the peninsula, slower drive westbound from the hayward side because the morning volume is increasing and hayward southbound 880 around 80 street a motorcycle crash is on the shoulder. this distraction will cause more slowing down out of san leandro. farther over to the right the orange low cloud for the tri valley, tip lar pattern livermore, dublin and in toward pliz anton. fog for discovery bay, brentwood or at least low clouds in the area. no major problems for the north bay but that orange highlighting, maybe low clouds forenovato and tougher visibility in portions north of san rafael. look at the bay bridge toll plaza as well, we see things backing up here, of course the metering lights are on and a live look at fremont 880 building in volume as well. southbound headlights toward the south bay there's no drama, san
jose has a typical slowing 101 at 680. always a little bit of building up, always drama, nothing dramatic about the drama, it's standard drama. >> thanks a lot. >> a lot of drama keeps it interesting. >> 6:10 and a refinery fire in southern california can put a squeeze on your wallet. we'll explain why, next. an idea for something you can do this weekend, does it involve tech? of course. we'll take a look coming. you up. ♪
here are today's top stories. 6:12. san jose police announced an arrest at a late night shooting at a sports bar in alum rock. police release surveillance images of two women who may be connected to the homicide of a gilroy man. the women caught on video used the man's credit card. tainted medical equipment might be the culprit of a deadly
superbug at the ucla medical center. seven people are confirmed to have been infected, two have died. the a massive explosion at a southern california owl refinery could mean higher prices at the gas pump. you can see the mangled metal and ash quofrg tcovering the fa. some economists are predicting a bump at the pump of up to 20 cents a gallon within the month. this comes as drivers in the bay area are already paying about 25 cents more per gallon compared to last month. >> we got that temporary reprieve, now getting a little bit more expensive. google is gearing up for a fight against the fbi. >> scott mcgrew, google thinks the feds are pushing for too much power, of all things. >> in search, but in this case search warrants. google has objected to a filing by the justice department which wants to expand the power of search warrants, allowing a judge to authorize a search anywhere on any computer, right
now if the feds want to see some data, they need a warrant issued by a judge who can only issue a warrant for a computer in his or her district. that's based on legal tradition, right, a judge in new jersey can't sign a search warrant to search your house in california. so why should he be able to write one for your computer? well the fbi says in this day and age, it needs the power to get a search warrant to search any computer anywhere. google's fighting that idea in both the court of law and the court of public opinion. its to be lawyer writing in an open letter that kind of power would allow the fbi unlimited power all over the world. keep in mind, this tension is very real. remember when president obama was at stanford on friday, he invited the head of google who did not attend nor did the head of facebook nor yahoo!. on a lugter not elugter not technology and once in a while i'm impressed with something.
this is a tour guide, it uses gps to guide you from spot to spot in san francisco. as you stand under the transamerica building you get a voice in your head telling you all about it. there are tours of pushermen's wharf behind the scenes and the tenderloin. they publish awe new tour every month and this one is about, of all things, trash and recycling in the city. >> all up and down the shorelines of this bay is where people used to dump their garbage, both officially and unofficially. >> so you get this little voice in your head, that's a trashy tour, right, it may not be the one you want to start with, even if it was created by a former npr reporter. the one i want to you start with is called cool gray city of love, the book about san francisco neighborhoods, the author of that has done a tour and it is super cool. >> that is neat. >> called detour. it's expensive, about six bucks but worth it. >> just for the app? >> for each tour. >> oprah has her book club and
that's your tour club. that's the first recommendation. >> it's awesome. happening now at 6:15, not the polar vortex but the si siberian express bringing another round of brutally cold weather from the east coast down to florida. massachusetts an avalanche from the roof of an ice ring buried five people. four climbed out but one needed to be rescued. niagara falls isn't moving much. there's water flowing but parts are frozen over creating quite the view for tourists willing to brave the temperatures. a car in baltimore looked more like an ice sculpture. pipe burst and water landed on the car and completely froze it over. >> that could be problematic. 6:16, time to check your microclimate forecast. live look outside san jose. no cold, icy and snowy conditions there. i can see out of the corner of my eye that large weather wall you have a snow report coming up

mike. >> some folks head out there on a christina quest. >> oh. >> low clouds around the area part of the reason i want to show you this and the volume build of course. let's show you another camera in san jose, the same city but farther west, this is 280 northbound at 17 and 880. low clouds is what i wanted to show you and of course the build. we're talking just north of that camera shot, there is the camera shot with slowing, farther north we have a crash clearing to the shoulder at lawrence expressway. there's the build for 101, we showed you the first camera shot, 87, 85, the orange at the bottom of why you are screen, it's been hovering around 17, right around the santa cruz mountains and the summit, low clouds, fog potentially over there and mist, possibly drizzle. we've seen that from time to time from 101 through morgan hill, san martin. getting a little break as far as readouts are concerned. looking toward the east bay as well, southbound 880, zoomed toward hayward, slower drive southbound for the nimitz, "a" street an earlier crash,
activity off to the shoulder. little more distraction so a little more slowing. fremont to the nimitz, southbound 680 sees a build out of pleasanton toward sunol. the orange means low clouds and fog tri valley out of the altamont and toward livermore and dublin. we'll move the map farther north. fog registers for discovery bay, antioch, pittsburgh and bay point. concord and walnut creek moving smoothly, predictable pattern. richmond and the east shore freeway move nicely to the bay bridge toll plaza. the backup is there, the metering lights are on. look at the north bay on the map a little slowing towards san rafael, just about registering on the map and the live shot the glowing lights, definitely moisture in the air and low clouds drifting in the shot from time to time. back to you. >> thank you, mike. 6:49. developing right now, nearly 00 people will undergo testing after they were exposed to a deadly superbug at ucla
medical center. seven people were infected, two died. >> halle jackson joins us. the superbug traces pack to a contaminated medical device. >> reporter: all these cases potentially linked to the mechanism used in an ercp endoscopy, even if hospitals like lauk sterilizes the manufacturer's recommendations and national standards it's possible this bacteria could stay on this piece of equipment because it's resistant to antibiotics. that's what makes it dangerous and why the cdc calls it a nightmare bacteria. it may have contributed to the deaths of two people in ucla. similar outbreaks have been seen recently in seattle, in chicago, a hospital in pittsburgh as well. so that is where the concern comes from. all of these patients who have been exposed, about 170 of them, are being given free home testing kits so they can see if, in fact, that bacteria has
infected their bodies. important to note here, healthy people generally don't have to worry about it. it's mostly a kesh for fol lly with other conditions. we'll have much more coming uppen the "today" show. >> hospitals checking their equipment as well, thank you. of:51. this morning gilroy police would like to you take a good look at surveillance video showing two women using a dead person's credit card. it's video from inside a san jose convenience store. police say the two women are persons of interest in the killing of robert heiser. officers found heiser dead inside of his gilroy home early monday morning. so far they're not saying how he died but they are calling his death a homicide. of:51, two months later and still no suspects in the shooting death of a young man in san leandro. police are calling the murder of 21-year-old joel ramirez a case of mistaken identity. ramirez was shot outsite his home in december. yesterday police announced the shooter was actually after someone else someone involved in
the marijuana grow operation in the house next door. investigators hope a $25,000 reward will lead to a break in the case. the teenager who prosecutors say raped a pizza delivery driver will be back in court this morning. 17-year-old darian myles jr. kidnapped and raped a woman while she was delivering a pizza in antioch. myles jr. was already on probation for another crime when police say he attacked a driver. >> a santa clara university student accused of stabbing his roommate inside their dorm is headed to court today. officials say he may enter a plea. police say dylan kim stabbed his roommate tuesday and cut himself. the roommate is going to be okay thankfully. no word yet on the events that led up to the stabbing. a key white house player visits the bay area. housing and urban development secretary julian castro will visit san francisco and oakland.
he and mayor ed lee will discuss the latest efforts to improve affordable housing opportunities. castro will go to oakland for a roundtable discussion with young minorities. children will be paying more to ride the golden gate ferry or the golden gate transit. today authorities will meet to discuss the change to the qualifying age limits for young fares. right now any passenger 6 through 18 gets a discount and the proposed change would make 5-year-olds pay as well. probably have to go into their piggy bank. >> cut a break for them. it hoested the beatles, the giants and this morning time to say good-bye. >> it is officially the final chapper it. "today in the bay's" stephanie chuang joins us live from the stick. they're starting on the outside of the stadium, they already did the inside. >> reporter: that's right, good morning to you both, sam and laura. they've gutted the inside. today people in the area will finally get to see some changes, the start of crews tearing down the exterior of this fixture. i spoke with one worker who said
the work will probably be on the other side of the stadium here but work using wrecking machines, high-reach ex-is aka vator. inside the demolition has been well under way. our chopper caught what is left inside, not much. the community voiced concerns about noise, vibration and mostly health impacts from the dust and asbestos. one of the people leading that effort just spoke with us this morning and says people here are still very worried. >> i have neighbors on this street that have small children and we're concerned about the particulates in the dust and the high risk and incidence of the environmental effects and respiratory illnesses that cost the families. >> reporter: she adds neighbors have counted two dust monitors here, when she says there should be four to six. we are still waiting for a response from the developer, lenar urban again it's early. they've said they're dedicated
to a dust control plan, employed an on-site envirn mental consultant to monitor the air quality and air levels. they're more excitement of what's to come, urban shopping outlet, more than 3 million square feet of office space, in addition more than 12,000 permanent jobs. the outlet mall is set to open in two years. stephanie chuang, "today in the bay." >> jobs are always good for the economy. thanks a lot. at 6:55 the changes in san francisco continue. there's a new kind of cab in town. >> a new player if you will. scott mcgrew, the taxi's answer to uber. >> taxi service has been historically pretty disappointing. uber is upping the bar. taxi industry created some app called flywheel where you can hit a put on it and get a cab. desoto cab has rebranded itself as flywheel, repainting and gussying up its cabs.
cleaner and vanl, maybe not as quickly as an uber but close. let's speak of something i have avoided talking about for months here. is apple going to build a car? i avoided this conversation because of the idea just seemed ridiculous. of course apple is not going to build a car! except there's growing evidence maybe it will. the latest court filing from a battery company called a123 shows that apple may be stealing automotive battery engineers from that company. the high-end car industry is sort of apply, guys. fancy carmakers have huge profit margins and apple likes huge profit margins. high-end cars have a sliver of a market share but apple is okay with that, too, because back in the day apple was a minor player in the computer industry. steve jobs would point out apple had the same market share as mercedes-benz so maybe, keep in mind, ten years ago, if you said apple was going to make a cell phone, people would have thought you were crazy. cell phone?
no, not apple. >> okay, we'll see if the cars. we'll keep this little segment so we can replay it years from now. >> exactly. solid maybe. yes. >> thank you very much, scott. 6:56. >> a final check of the day's top stories for but an may machine is in custody in connection with a double shooting at a san jose sports bar, happened at dzo sports and bar on alum rock avenue last night. tainted medical equipment might be to blame for a deadly superbug at ucla medical center. millions of americans braved extreme cold overnight and more frigid temperatures are on the way. look at how bundled they are. niagara falls and lake erie are frozen. maine has seen a record 109 inches of snow, in get this, the past three weeks. >> that might as well just be another country, forget about the other side of our country. >> can we ship it here? >> can we ship the snow? no, we're happy. >> keep it over there, please. 6:57. we have a beautiful day coming
your way. we're starting out in the upper 50s, in many locations you're 55 degrees could kick off the new day in san francisco, up to the low 60s by lunch time and a couple 70s out there later on, and like i've been telling you, first week of march looking promising for a changing pattern and we might get some significant tahoe snow out of this system so it's looking good for us. >> really good news, thank you very much. mike, what do you have cooking this morning? you have a few things we're monitoring the san mateo bridge as well. >> picking up the volume but the crashes on either side have cleared. the san jose camera, christina showed that to you in the south bay shot, 280 northbound coming toward us. the car is appearing out of the low clouds, hovering all around the south bay, look at your map, the orange highlights the santa cruz mountains at the bottom of your screen. the crash 280 backs up more and the earlier crash at lawrence expressway is cleared from the roadway there. crash is on both sides of the san mateo bridge and cleared with sam the orange highlighting, antioch, discovery bay, livermore, low clouds hovering around our camera shot
and possibly some mist, maybe a little drizzle on the windshield. novato on the left shows you a slower drive from highway 37 and down through san rafael. typical build there and i want to show you the oakland shot as well, folks head north with the taillights past the coliseum, low clouds as well. we may lose sight of this camera shot for a couple minutes here and there. the deck itself the drivers will be all right but those low clouds hovering all over the place. traffic might be one reason we often don't feel great about living here, one of the few reasons that people could complain about. when it comes to the state of happenis the state of california could be doing better. >> i don't believe this study. the state is nearly number 12 out of 50 when it comes to being happy. the new happy states rankings come from a gallup well-being survey. >> what states are technically the happiest? apparently alaska, speaking of the gold, where at least they know it's going to be cold. hawaii finished second, which seems like a no-brainer, curious why that isn't number one and there must be something about the frontier, south dakota and
wyoming came in third and fourth, in front of montana and colorado with five and six. west virginia finished dead last. >> hmm. love our california. happy times here, right? >> that's right. good morning. how low can it go? the icy siberian express rolls over three-quarters of the nation. more than 100 records set to fall this and behind that two more storms targeting millions. super bug scare linked to a dangerous drug resistant bacter they may have been exposed. whole in our souls for kayla mueller, t while her friends release a heartbreaking new video showing
